Meet Just Teddy

The Baker, the Mama, the Pizza Guy & the Little Eclair

The Zaki family has long dreamed of creating a boulangerie and pâtisserie where they could showcase their passion for baking bread, creating delicate pastries and preparing good food. 


They had no idea that their stand at 1 Fox Market in downtown Johannesburg would be the catalyst of their dream, or how lovingly their offerings would be embraced. Their passion for perfection, their family traditions which date back hundreds of years kneaded together with an unwavering work ethic have magically combined to create a phenomenon, a one-of-a-kind boulangerie and pâtisserie that is a paradise for the senses.

What sets this Fine Boulangerie & Pâtisserie apart is the closeness of the family which runs it and the way they have woven Middle Eastern flair into a Parisian pâtisserie. Their offerings are a subtle alchemy of French and Lebanese cultures.

"No family time has ever been complete without a table groaning under the weight of dishes demonstrating the love we share."

" Family is everything. These are the people who know us best, who have been with us during our best and worst moments. We have broken bread together so many times, shared hearty laughs and formed indestructible bonds."

The Just Teddy - Fine Boulangerie & Pâtisserie team is led by Teddy Zaki (who was a finalist in The Great South African Bake Off TV series). Teddy’s wife Natasha is the glue of the family and ensures that business behind-the-scenes is taken care of, daughter Jordyne takes on the role of Head Pâtissier; and son Jeff is the ‘Bread Narco’ leading the Boulangerie (bread) team - their undeniable family bond is evident on every plate of lovingly prepared food served in their store.
